Still Snowing.........

Northstar snow reporters reporting 2 inches as of 6 a.m. but that was measured earlier than that and is low because there are around 6 inches here in front of my office at the base.

Front is pushing towards Sacramento this morning. As it pushes closer towards us today it will increase the snow intensity with the heaviest snow this afternoon as it pushes across the area. Snow showers will continue tonight into Thursday morning. No change in the snow totals by Thursday morning of 10-15 inches in the Village & 15-20 inches on the mountain.

Next storm ready to dive in tomorrow afternoon and this storm is stronger than this first one. The models may even be a little low on the snow totals. Snow will last through the day on Friday and some snow showers even into Friday night with the moist flow off the Pacific. By Saturday morning expecting another 1-2 feet in the Village and 2-3 feet on the mountain.

Next storm still looking good to move in on Saturday and last into Saturday night. There really won't be a break in the snow today through Saturday. By Sunday morning expecting up to another foot in the Village and 1-2 feet on the mountain. By Sunday our 4 day totals should be around 2-4 feet in the Village and 4-6 feet on the mountain.

We will have 9 day totals around 4-8 feet in the Village and 8-11 feet on the mountain. That is an amazing amount of snow in a a little over a week and Northstar will be closing at the end of April with a huge base.

A bit of a break next week with just some brush-by systems to our North. BA
